Starting a page

Perhaps I'm being rash in creating this page before we have more conclusive data, but I have to assume that this character will be rather important. Obviously the page needs to be fleshed out, but there's not much to go off of, and I tried to avoid veering into speculation.

If anyone has a picture, that'd be great. Alpha5099 20:31, 7 October 2006 (CDT)

You did just fine, Alpha. I'm sure we'll get a photo here in the next few days. --Spencerian 15:43, 8 October 2006 (CDT)
I've got one, but I'm not sure where to upload it. I'm painfully new at doing anything more than typo correction. --PrePressChris 20:13, 16 October 2006 (CDT)
Down the left side of the page under the toolbox section, there is a link called "Upload File." Clicking this'll take you too the media wiki where you will have to register again just like you did here. Find the upload file on the left side of the wiki screen there and follow the instructions. To post the pic use [([Image Name|thumb|Image Desc])], just without the (), only the [[]]. --Talos 20:40, 16 October 2006 (CDT)

Kacey's "Mother"

Can we start a discussion concerning Kacey's "Mother". I found it very suspicious that she would be essentially waiting there on the flight deck when Starbuck and Kacey got off the shuttle. With 50,000 people in the whole fleet, a chance meeting like that would be very very slim. (Not nearly as the astronomical chances of Baltar being saved from Caprica by Sharon and Helo (a weirdness which can be explained by the fact that Sharon is a Cylon)). The whole Kacey subplot seems a bit of a waste if it really turns out Kacey wasn't Starbuck's kid. If Kacey *is* Starbuck's kid, it makes sense that the Cylons would want Kacey back in to Cylon hands ASAP. -- GIR 21:33, 29 October 2006 (CST)

... and the reverse could very easily be true. There's nothing to indicate -- for or against -- Kacey's mother being a Cylon, other than the chance meeting on board Galactica. Personally, for the record, I believe that Kacey is a human child and that the whole meeting was an act of dramatic license on the part of the writers. The emotional impact of finding out that Kacey isn't Kara's kid wouldn't have been as hard-hitting if it occured an episode or two later. "Oh, look, Starbuck, don't know how to delicately put this, but... we've drawn up a list of missing children and have, through research, discovered that your alleged child is, in fact, the daughter of Misses Such-and-Such." -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 21:42, 29 October 2006 (CST)
Speaking of Misses Such-and-Such - did anyone remember Julia's surname? -- Spike 00:49, 8 November 2006 (CST)
More to the point, the present article asserts as fact something that is not actually certain at all. There is no particular reason whatsoever to believe that Kacey is not genetically Starbuck's daugther, other than the Cylon who told her this appears to be one of the more manipulative ones. It has to be remembered that he told her very clearly that the fertilization was in vitro, and implanted in a human host mother; ergo, the mother who appeared later on the Galactica could be that surrogate mother and be none the wiser as to the true origin of the child's genetic material (e.g., if well drugged, she might not even remember the procedure at all; they Cylons would simply have to have chosen a sexually-active woman to be surrogate). As to other matters, yes, it's awfully coincidental that "mom" happened to be right there when the populace are reunited back on the Galactica, but all sorts of things in shows like this are coincidental like that, so I wouldn't put too much store in it. Finally, we don't know whether the Cylons will be seeking the recovery of this child, now that they already have one (Boomer's daughter). Anyway, I strongly feel that this article should be rewritten to stop asserting the unknown and explain the actual situation, which leaves a definite question mark hanging in the air.

Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinteresting theory. I've never thought of that... --BklynBruzer 08:30, 26 September 2007 (CDT)
You're right about the assertion of truth without the proper evidence... However, in going through the podcast transcripts, I found a comment that indicates that the child isn't Kara's:
Ron Moore: (From Podcast:Exodus, Part II#Act 4) And this. This little beat of Ka- oh my God. One last mindfuck. It wasn't her baby after all. It was just something Leoben did. It's like his final little victory. And it just plays a complete mindgame on her. I love that. (Laughs) I love that so much. 'Cause, you know what? There's a chunk of the audience that I just believe is sitting there through this whole thing going, "Oh my God. I can't believe that they went for this. That they really brought in- Kara's gonna have the baby now? What, Kara's gonna have a child? And, oh my God." And not wanted to believe it and getting a little annoyed. And then you buy into it. And then you're just- you get all the way to the end and you bought into it and then it's, like, "Nope. Guess what? It wasn't true."
I doubt you'd be able to get any clearer than that. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 10:57, 26 September 2007 (CDT)
This is, indeed, pretty damning evidence. --BklynBruzer 12:29, 26 September 2007 (CDT)
Fair enough; the article should cite that podcast and perhaps quote from it (less extensively). SMcCandlish 15:41, 26 September 2007 (CDT)
I definitely agree. Thanks for pointing out the issue! :-) -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate - Sanctuary Wiki — New 15:46, 26 September 2007 (CDT)
I've added the cite. --Catrope(Talk to me or e-mail me) 16:08, 26 September 2007 (CDT)

The actor's name

The end credits for Exodus, Part 1 list her as Madeline Parker, with the letter "e" occuring twice, not three times. --123home123 20:56, 15 October 2006 (CDT)

Destroyed?

Re: "Thrace's ovary was recovered from the remains of the farm that was destroyed by the Caprica Resistance (The Farm)." Was it destroyed? I got the impression that, aside from Starbuck wrecking Sue-Shawn's (sp?) unit, that it largely survived intact. I may have missed some dialog on that. --20:01, 16 October 2006 (CDT)

In Precipice, Kara states that she blew the crap out of it. -- Noneofyourbusiness 20:04, 16 October 2006 (CDT)
It's up to debate. Starbuck is very emotional about the whole topic and the onscreen evidence from The Farm doesn't support total destruction of the facility. And I take anything that Leoben Conoy says with a dumptruck load of salt because everything he says is either twisted truth or lies. So what happened to Starbuck's ovaries I think is still a mystery.--Straycat0 12:32, 26 October 2006 (CDT)

Kacey's Name

Kacey = KAra thraCE-connoY ? ;o) -- Tirkon 11:43, 26 October 2006 (CDT)

no. :=P --Shane (T - C - E) 11:44, 26 October 2006 (CDT)
Perhaps if she really were thair offspring, but Kacey has a real mum. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 11:52, 26 October 2006 (CDT)
Um... shouldn't the article be called Kacey Brynn? --Pedda 19:23, 3 January 2007 (CST)
No, because we don't know if Brynn is the mother's maiden name or her married name. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 00:03, 4 January 2007 (CST)
When I first heard Kacey's name, I thought KC, which in turn could be short for Kara Conoy. --BklynBruzer 10:13, 20 January 2007 (CST)

Request for screencap

Could we get a screencap of Kacey, Starbuck and the doll from the end of Torn? It could replace the picture of her mother and emphasize their bond.--Noindiecred 13:24, 10 November 2006 (CST)
